Unni Transformations 5x.jpg

Dissecting a brick of melded black and white negatives rescued from a vintage Indian photography studio, Unni Krishnan Pulikkal peeled negative from negative to discover the visual secrets that lay within each frame. Unni cleaned over 40 individual negatives, placed each on a piece of backlit glass and photographed them with a macro lens.  

According to Unni, “the individual faces in the picture may be lost to oblivion, but in spite of the years of decay, the vague image of their ethos remains. Words vanish. Forms fade. The traces of our deeds remain.”
